I can't believe it is July 1st already!!  I am linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade!

I can't believe that it is July 1, and now I officially have one month of summer left!!
I am listening to the Bachelorette!  This is one of the first weeks that I have watched the show the night it airs!  Thank you summer!
I am loving the fact that I have been able to spend so much time with my family!  We have a great little routine going of swimming after our naps!  It is so much fun to have the four of us out in the pool, spending time together, and no devices around!
I am thinking about Vegas!  I can't wait to head up there on Sunday!  It is going to be a great week!  I am looking forward to the big meet up on Wednesday, and then heading over to Kristen's (Easy Teaching Tools) meet up on Friday night!!
I am wanting my car to be fixed!  After my little accident on Saturday we are now just waiting for insurance to get in touch with us so we can get it fixed.  We are playing phone tag with insurance now though, so there really is no chance of me getting my car back before Vegas!  Good thing my rental car is pretty nice!!

I need to pack my kids, myself and make sure my hubby is packed!  My husband is leaving on a mission trip on Wednesday to head to Africa for 12 days!!  He has talked about going on this trip for a few years now, and we are so excited that he is able to go this year!!  My kids and I are heading up to my parent's house for the fourth, and then my kids will stay with my parents while I am in Vegas!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer, and I can't wait to see what you are up to!!  Make sure to go link up with Farley!!
I am teaming up with the Teaching Tribune today for the Monday Meet Up!  I am excited that I found this link up a few weeks ago, and am now finally linking up!!

This week we are to share three things we are thankful for.  I have so many to be thankful for, but right now here are my top three!

I am also thankful for so many of you!!  I am amazed at the turn out for my milestone giveaway!!  Thank you all for your love and support!

In celebration of my anniversary and the amazing support of my giveaway my store is 20% off today!!
I am so thankful for all of the support I received from so many of you last night.  I know this blogging/TPT/IG world is amazing, but last night I felt so much love!!

I was in a car accident yesterday afternoon.  I had stopped at Walmart on my way to a baby shower yesterday to get a few more things to add to the present.  I was also grabbing some pool toys for my kids.  I had gone about a mile when all of a sudden I was in an accident.  It was horrible!  Luckily my car isn't that bad, but isn't drivable.  

We had to stand outside, luckily in the shade, and wait for about an hour.  We called 911, and the firefighters came first.  They stayed for a while checking things out.  They had to help the kid who was driving the other car, and he was off to the hospital.  I don't know for sure what happened to him, but it looks like he might have really hurt his leg.  There was no blood, or bones sticking out, so I'm not sure what happened.

When the police got there they took all of our information and wrote up an accident report.  The other car had to be towed and mine was drivable, or so we thought.  I got in my car to leave and it turned out that my seat belt locked up and wouldn't unlock.  I was able to drive it home, but then insurance told me I should go get a rental car.

I headed off to the rental place with a friend who lives right down the street.  He was great, and stayed with me until we made sure I had a car to drive home.  Now we have a rental car until our car gets fixed.  We are a one car family right now, so we had to get a rental.

I know this accident could have been so much worse!  I was by myself, I didn't have my babies with me, I wasn't seriously hurt, and our car shouldn't be too hard to fix.  It wasn't what I had planned for yesterday, but I am thankful for the reminder of how precious life is.  Every day is a gift and I need to look at it that way.

Don't forget that today is the last day to try to win my big milestone giveaway too!!  I hope that you have entered and that you win!!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

This week has been a great week, and I am so excited to be home!!

We have spent a lot of time in the pool this week!  We have a nice little routine going where after nap time we go out and spend about an hour in the pool.  It is great because we are all outside together, and it helps my kids sleep so well at night!!

Have you heard of the program you can download called Popcorn-Time!?!  It is amazing!!  My dad introduced us to it, and now my hubby and I have been binge watching How I Met Your Mother.  We missed this season since we didn't have cable when it started, but now we only have 7 episodes left!!  I don't know what I'm going to do when it's over!!

I am loving all of the amazing fruit that is on sale at the grocery stores right now!!  It is making eating healthier so much easier!!

I went in and talked with my new principal yesterday.  It was so nice to catch up!  He was the fifth grade teacher when I moved to the school in 2008, and then he left for a few years.  He is now back, and our principal!  I can't wait to see the amazing things he's going to do!  He was able to switch our SDE conference too, so now instead of going to Singapore Math I will be attending the Differentiation Conference!  Anyone else attending that conference!?!  I can't wait to see so many people in Vegas in two weeks!!

I am so thankful for all of you!  I reached two huge milestones earlier this month!!  I had set goals for myself to have 1,000 IG followers, and 150 TPT followers.  I have other goals set that I have reached yet either, but I am working hard towards those ones!  To celebrate these two milestones I am having a giveaway!!!

I am linking up with Just a Primary Girl for Pinspired Thursday.

I love this link up because I love Pinterest and I love finding new ideas.  Pinterest is my go to for when I need something to cook too!

This week I am going to share a few things with you.

Last year I was really into making sure that I was eating healthy and staying fit before school started. I made the mistake and didn't start my workout routine until August 1.  This summer I don't want to wait that long because then I know it won't really happen.  I found this awesome July arm workout though, so I am excited to use it to kick start my work out in July!  Plus, I can do these things inside, and in Vegas, so I won't have to worry about it being too hot to work out!

I love all things maxi skirts and clothes!  I love finding new outfits to wear on Pinterest, and this is one of my favorites right now!  I love this color green, and I don't usually wear green.  Actually, I don't think that I have any green in my closet right now.  I may have to hunt for something like this really soon!  Polyvore is where I find some amazing outfits, and you can find this one here!

The last thing I like to use Pinterest for is to find tasty drinks to make!  I love these drinks, and look forward to bring the ingredients with me to drink in Vegas in two weeks!!  If anyone needs a drink, come and visit!!

This one will be perfect for during the day and sitting in the conferences!  I can't wait to bring my pitcher and try out all of these different drinks!

This one looks yummy to carry around walking around the strip at night, or while we are lounging around at the pool soaking in everything we learned during the day!

Don't forget to link up with Just a Primary Girl and check out what everyone else is finding on Pinterest!!  This week everyone who links up is being entered to win a $25 TPT gift certificate too!!
I am so excited to be teaming up with two linky parties this week!!

The first one is What I'm Loving Wednesday with Covered in Glitter and Glue!

I'm loving that we are home now!  We just got home from our big trip of the summer really late Monday night, and by really late I mean midnight!  You can check out some of our traveling pictures on IG!!

I'm loving that I have been reading like crazy, and that my hubby loves to drive!  (Not really, but he doesn't love me driving!!  he he)  I was able to finish THREE books in the car on this trip from Northern California!  Now keep in mind they were children's books, but who doesn't love a good book to tell their kids about!!

I'm loving that it is still June and that I get to spend many more days out in the pool with my kids!!

I am also linking up for Wordless Wednesday!!

Where did you travel to this summer?
I am linking up with Mrs. H over at Just a Primary Girl.  I love her Pinterest Thursdays even if I don't always get to them.  I love Pinterest, and it was my go to before TPT.  Of course many of the fantastic ideas out there come from TPT, so really I guess I was looking at TPT in use the whole time!

Today I am sharing with you a delicious recipe!!  My favorite recipe that I have cooked many times is a buffalo chicken!  I found it on Pinterest a while ago and I cook it every few weeks.  We love this buffalo chicken with pretzel rolls from Costco and blue cheese!

It's the easiest recipe ever, and who can go wrong with blue cheese and buffalo sauce!  I hope that you enjoy as well!  When my teaching bestie would be coming over for dinner it was always her request.  Now any time that she comes into town I try and cook it for her!  

There is no link up this week, but thought I would still share with you all!!

Where is your favorite place to vacation?  I have been coming to Lake Tahoe since I was a little girl!!

I hope that you are all enjoying your summer!!  Stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon!!
